    Joe Sakic retires; ESPN & Bettman= rented goalies

    After 20 years, "Super Joe" Sakic is retiring from the NHL:
    Colorado Avalanche - News: Sakic Announces Retirement - 07/09/2009

    His stats are simply amazing, all the while remaining an excellent human being with more modesty than your local convent.

    As a HUGE Sakic fan, I will miss him dearly.
    Joe was my absolute favorite player in the NHL, and I have (2) Sakic jerseys.
    I'm considering going to the opening night game in CO to see his jersey retired to the rafters.
    The past few seasons, I would purchase extra tickets for the CBJ vs. COL games for friends and family, letting them enjoy- in person- how awesome Joe was. I really don't have a reason to do that anymore.

    I hope that he remains in hockey, in some way (mgmt., coaching, etc.).
    It will make the NHL a better league if he's in it. I promise.

    So Joe, thanks for all those great years, the great games, and the most twisted wrister in the biz!

    - Gary Bettman. The commish of the NHL couldn't take 10 minutes out of his busy (off-season) day to write a note to Joe thanking him for helping make the NHL great as an ambassador of the sport and excellent role model for youth players. Punkass.
    - ESPN for their complete lack of coverage of this historic event.
    Nothing on TV. Nothing on radio.
    Apparently some kid dunking over LeBron is more news-worthy, and somehow MMA makes the front page of their website. You fail.

    As an Avs fan, I will miss seeing Joe wristing one by the goalie. The NHL is poorer for his departure, and the quiet nature of it underlines all the more how underrated Joe has been through his career.
